The marketing of traditional business models suggests ways to improve a firm’s reputation by making the right options based on the Casadesus’ and Ricart’s construction. This reputation is vital to keeping the commitment of existing clients as well as getting new clients. Most architects follow this business model. Some make smarter choices than others, leaving room for improvement through this optimization. However, many small structures firms are not in the phase of their business where they may be enjoying the benefits of specialization and reputation. The “cut-throat” competition will not allow them to fully combine into this business model, reducing their profitability severely.
This kind of firms must get into the industry through a different strategy that eliminates a few of the makes that work against them. It is possible by using alternate business models such as Architect-Developer that was proved to be superior choice in this study. The interviews showed that owners of companies that are in the start-up stage are very interested in this process and believe it to be valuable for his or her future development and success.
Furthermore, it is possible to make an excellent cross of business models that focuses on many forces in the industry as well as incorporating the developments. Overall, the findings of this research suggest that there are ways to raise profitability of small architecture firms. Further research in form of case studies is preferred to quantify and show the extent of the effectiveness of the business model optimization.
